First thing to do is disconnect your router from the internet. Reset it and give it a strong password

hey mod thanks for your response,

I have disconneted the router from Internet and did reset it with a strong password. I did not restart my system yesterday and the redirection did not happen. But today after i restarted my system i tried the website again and the same redirection has happened.

Please let me know if i am doing something wrong here.

Thanks.

Are you using XP or Vista

Please reboot your computer and update Malwarebytes. This time do a FULL scan and post the new log here so I can take a look
You can do both

I may well be wrong, but I have a problem with this and have found what seems to be a rootkit installed on my infected pc, which could explain why programs are not finding it (as it's pretty well hidden), there are a number of rootkit programs available, rootkit revealer or gmer for example which you could use to check if you do have one.

I can only think of one other scan to try, the log is clean
We'll try this and if things do not get better we will have to prep you for a HJT log
-------------------------

Please download Dr.Web CureIt & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

With my limited knowledge I've wasted enough of your time
I'd suggest submitting a HJT log Follow the directions here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
Then post in the proper forum here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
The HJT team will be sure to get rid of it
